Easter Day, 2006
Sent to preschool to make it ready for elementary and elementary schools, to make it ready for middle and middle schools, to make it ready for college, and to college to make it ready for work, to make it ready for the world. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. At all times we try to get our kids and ourselves ready for the challenges of the present, so that we can integrate well and prevent them.
This is what it is about. As we believe in an afterlife, we try to get ourselves and our kids as well prepared for this kind of afterlife. Religions are trying to exist now that we are supposed to exist in everlasting existence. Religions do now what we will do in everlasting may.
Christ Jesus came to give us the free present of everlasting living. It showed us how to be prepared for our lives after the Ascension - "Love one another as I have loved you," he said. Religious is to be the practice of these two precepts.
Celebrations at Easter 2006
We take our celebration seriously at St. Michael's, and this Easter we have again made a very particular one. Soon after 9 a.m., our celebration began with a rumbling, hands-on readings of the Pascal sermon of Saint Hypolitus. The celebration went on with our old-fashioned Pascal festival, which offered the best dishes and drinks that our great chefs had to serve, among them homemade bread, homemade bread, homemade lox, juice and meringue.
While all this was going on, our United Benefice Junior Choir under the direction of Sandra Harper was working to complete their music for our Celebration. Oh, and so that the little ones also had a good pre-worship period, one of our devotees occupied them with an "Easter hunt" for handmade pralines that were concealed in the church.
This cheerful topic went on with UBJC-led musical accompaniment and intercessory prayers by John Robinson, who focused on giving thanks to God for all the good things he has done in the last few wk.
Harper preached the message about the empty grave of Christ compared it to the sentence of the 1966 World Cup commentators "They think it's all over". While the next part of this sentence "It is now", which followed the whistling of the arbitrator, was of course a brillantly clocked UK understated, it certainly did not count for the case of Christ!
